Healthy Gums for a Healthy Smile

Groupe dentaire API’s general practice dentists offer a range of service in periodontal care. Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that prevents and treats diseases that affect the periodontium. It consists of the tissues that support the teeth such as the gums, the periodontal ligament, the cementum as well as the alveolar bone which is where the root of a tooth is inserted.

Periodontal care is essential for the maintaining of a healthy mouth and healthy teeth. That is why periodontics is an integral part of the work of our team of professionals.

Gingivitis and Periodontitis

They are the most common periodontal diseases. In Canada, they are the main cause of teeth loss for adults.

  • Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums caused by inadequate hygiene and dental plaque buildup. The gums become thus red, swollen, and may bleed while brushing. Gingivitis is easily treatable by using appropriate care when it is identified early on.
  • Periodontitis is a more serious periodontal disease that occurs when gums are left untreated. The inflammation may spread to other tissues that support teeth and can even go as far as damaging the jawbone. The teeth then become loose and the patient risks losing teeth for good. Periodontitis must be taken care of by a dentist trained in periodontics to limit damage this disease can cause.
